Ms. Palin has no doubt injected some energy into Republican circles.
I believe the reason is because voters of both parties sense something different about this woman.
She has no “Haaavahd” degree. Her parents aren’t millionaires. Her husband actually had a job. Her children make her proud, scared and disappointed. She is pro-life and gave birth to a Down syndrome child. She was angered by her local politics and did something about it. Because of achievement on the local level she was elected to the governorship there. She has a 70% approval rating as governor. She didn’t flinch when Charlie Gibson looked down his nose at her and asked about “hubris.”
These are the positives as seen by regular people.
Her negatives from the left are simple. She has no “Haavahd” degree. Her parents are not millionaires. Her children are like a microcosm of America’s children who make their parents proud, scared and disappointed. She actually diminished corruption — not just put a new face on it, in Alaska.
Remember Harry Reid’s land deal, Nancy Pelosi’s most urgent “urban renewal” right where she and her husband own ramshackle buildings? Let’s not forget old Charley Rangel failing to know he had to pay income tax on a huge rental income from an immensely expensive property he owns and could never afford on his Congressional salary. All this after ethics reform, democrat style.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
